Subject: PROBLEM: maestro3 driver for linux

I am not sure if this is the right place to send this to, but I cannot get my
maestro3/allegro (ESS1988) sound card working with the alsa or oss from
2.5.34 kernel (The newer ones oops on me before getting to init). The Alsa
driver does not even appear to detect the card although it will load. Playing
a wav causes a deadlock that does not allow the process to be killed.
Thanks, Warren

keywords: allegro, maestro, sound, oss, alsa

If some fields are empty or look unusual you may have an old version.
Compare to the current minimal requirements in Documentation/Changes.

After loading the alsa driver (snd-maestro3), "wavp
/usr/share/sound/KDE_Startup.wav" deadlocks the process. It doesn't lock up
the whole box. I just cannot kill the process, even via kill -9.
